Iterate over array of objects in Typescript


I need to iterate over the array of objects in angular 2 and limit the string length display for a particular key in the object.

 this.productService.loadAllProducts(product).subscribe(data => {
  if (this.authService.checkActiveSession(data)) {
    if (data.success) {
     //console.log(this.product_desc.substring(0,2))
         for(let i=0;i<data.products.length ;i++){  //How to properly iterate here!!
         console.log(data.products[0].product_desc)
      }
      this.source.load(data.products);
     } else {
      console.log('Not binded');
    }
  }

}); }

I need to limit the prod_desc length to (say) 10 characters while displaing for which i have used:

Eg:

this.product_desc.substring(0,10)

You can use the built-in forEach function for arrays.

Like this:

//this sets all product descriptions to a max length of 10 characters
data.products.forEach( (element) => {
    element.product_desc = element.product_desc.substring(0,10);
});

Your version wasn't wrong though. It should look more like this:

for(let i=0; i<data.products.length; i++){
    console.log(data.products[i].product_desc); //use i instead of 0
}

In Typescript and ES6 you can also use for..of:

for (var product of products) {
     console.log(product.product_desc)
}

which will be transcoded to javascript:

for (var _i = 0, products_1 = products; _i < products_1.length; _i++) {
    var product = products_1[_i];
    console.log(product.product_desc);
}
